    Default Hyperbaric Chamber/Pure Oxygen

    Hi there everyone!! i hope that all is well w/ u and yours? the weather here has been just glorious here in Hercules!!!! ahhh i just luv spring! not summer, spring!! (fall too!).

    anyway, dear hubby, whose always prowling the internet for new info/treatments, cam accross hyperbaric oxygen chamber being used for treatment of lupus, as well as for other ailments (we also have a newphew with severe cerebal palsey due to a botched delivery-yep, the hospital settled).

    has anyone heard of this?

    Well, I've heard of it for neuro problems in lupus, but I don't know anyone who has used it for lupus. And most insurers won't cover it for lupus because it's considered experimental. I had one treatment when I had osteomyelitis - it is covered by insurance for treatment of chronic osteomyelitis. I should say I was supposed to have a whole course of treatment, but I couldn't make it all the way through the first one, and the osteomyelitis specialist didn't recommend trying again. I am very claustrophobic, and that was like my worst nightmares. So I don't know if it might have helped the neuro lupus or not.
